Little Cormorant/ Punchi Diyakawa (Phalacrocorax niger)

Little Cormorant is very common resident bird in water bodies of low country. Large flocks can be seen in dry zone and occasional visitors in the hills. It is a good swimmer as well as a diver and while fishing it can stay underwater for a while and re-emerged some distance from where it dives. Usually it sits for long period on a dead tree, half sub-merged rock or river bank with its wings spread to dry them up. It breeds during North-East monsoons starting from October to April in colonies on trees standing in water in tanks, often with many other water birds such as Indian cormorants, night herons, pond herons, egrets, storks, etc. They are all dark coloured or black and have stout beaks with a strongly hooked tip, long necks that can be distended, retracted and twisted with ease, long streamlined bodies, long tails and wide round wings.
